In November of 2006, the voters of Kermit ISD passed a $33 million dollar bond issue for school facilities improvement. Plans began almost immediately, and ground was broken the following July on the first phase of construction, a new elementary school large enough to house the district's entire elementary population. Work progressed, and faculty & staff began to move in the summer of 2009. Our inaugural class of students began attending Kermit Elementary School on August 24, 2009.
